The PFM route

Description 

This is an overhanging route that requires some mixed climbing to reach the WI4-WI5 ice at the top. Bolts exist on the route but may be covered in ice so bring some pro along just in case. This route comes in every season then if a warm spell happens for a week will disappear for the season.

Location 

To get to PFM drive a little over three miles and take the pullout on the left and there she is.

Protection 

Bring small ice screws. Bolts exist on the route but bring pro just in case they are covered in ice. A few alders exist at the top of the route, but bring v-thread material just incase you don't think the alders will do.

90 percent of the FA's in the Anchorage area were completed by Ernie Borjon or Bob O'brien in the early 80's. Someone up there needs to give him a call and recapture the info in his brain about what happened in Anchorage back then.
